Tbe Americana plan to trap Aguinaldo by sending troops via the sea route to the north of him. Then he will be between two lines of Americans, and it may result in his cap ture. General Otis declares he has crashed the rebel army and Asuinaldo's so-called government. He adds that the Ameri cans are not going to stop on account of rainy weather, but will make an active campaign, cutting the rebel forces in two at Manila and trapping Aguinaldo to the north. He thinks the chief problem is now to exterminate the brigands and bandits who infest the island in immense bands of great strength and daring. The condition of Spanish prisoners is terrible. They are weak, emaciated, starved, beaten cruelly and ordered about by bayonets. United effort lias been made by merchants of all national aties to have the Spaniards set free by Aguinaldo.

"I gave him powerful nerve tonics and blood remedies, but to no purpose. As an experiment I finally bought a fifty cent package of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets at a drug store and gave them to him. Almost immediately relief was given and after he had used four boxes he was to all appearance, fully cured- "There was no more acidity or sour watery rising, no bloating after meals, the appetite was vigorous and he has gained between 10 and 12 pound In weight of solid, healthy flesh. "Although Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are advertised and sold In drug stores, yet I roiuider them a most valuable ad dition to anv physician's line of rem edies, as they are perfectly harmless and can he given to children or Invalids or In any condition of the stomach with perfect safely, boing harmless and con talnlng nothing hut fruit and vegetable essences, pare pepsin and Golden Sea1.

CONFLICT IS FOR LIBERTY Stinging Rebuke Aiming to Policy. to Those Who Art Thwart McKinley's Salkm, Or., April 14. Governor Geer this morning received the following tele gram from the Chicago Tribune : "The governors of South Dakota and Nebraska are demanding the recall of the volunteers from their states from tbe Philippines, on the ground that their term of enlistment expired when the ratificitions of the peace treaty were exchanged, and that the present conflict in the Philippines is in opposition to liberty and in the Interest of capitalism. Dj the people of your state demand the return of your volunteers for the same real ins?" Tonight the governor telegraphed tbe following reply : mere is quite a general wish among the people of Oregon that the volunteer soldiers of the state may soon be returned from Manila, but not for the reason in dicated by the governors of the states you mention, to-wlt., that 'the present conflict in tbe Philippines is in opposi tion to liberty and in the Interest of cap italisin.' "There is some juet:c3 in asking for the return of the volunteers, now that the war with Spain, for which they en listed, has been honorably concluded, and that the spasmodic difficulty yet lingering in the Philippines should be suppressed by the regular army of the United States, which is amply equipped for tbe purpose. It is believed, however, that this wish Is confined to those of us who are at home, as the Oregon bova at the front quite generally express a de sire to remain there uutil the difficulty is settled, "Our people take no stock in the de claration that the conflict in the Phil ippines Is 'waged In opposition to liberty and in the interest of capitalism.' The very men who make this charge now are the ones who, little more than a year ago, were loudly accusing President McKin ley of 'cowardice' and of delaying the war with Spain in the 'interest of capit alism,' as represtnted by Spanish bond holders. "The seizing of Ihe Philippines was an incident of that war wholly unfore seen by anybody, applauded by every patriotic citizen at the time, and they could not now be relinquished without a taint on our national h nor and a con fession of nation il weakness. "The charge that the American flag is waving over a confl ct In (lie Philippines 'in opposition to liberty and in the in terest of capitalism' savors very much of a spirit of demagogy to which (he people of Oregon are habitual strangers, and which finds no lodgment in their minds at this tune.

Washington, April 12. -The commis sioner of the general land office has cm celled the homestead mtry of Alberi O.B 'A n . 13acson(& hfltE delicious and wholesome cerofa number of small tracts ol land in The Dalles land district, Oregon, as) those indentical lands were granted to The Dalles Military Road Company in 1867, to aid in the construction of its road, Last rear Officer was permitted by the local land officers to make entry of these land'', and final certificate was issued to him, he claiming to have settled on them in 1890. Later, when the error was realise J. the entry was held for cancellation, and Officer given sixty days within which to show reason why the entry should not be finally cancelled. This he attempted to do, saying that there was no other claim than his to tbe land when he settled, that no such grant was ever made to fhe road company, and tbe further fact that he ha made improve ments valued at 2000. The commis sioner holds, however, that Officer failed to show tbat the lands were ex cepted from the grant for the military road company, and tbe mere fajct tbat the lands were not listed by the com pany in no way affects the company' right. He therefore held Officer's home stead entry for cancellation, bat subject to right to appeal.
